  • Description


    We are a family of 5 adults, I Patrizia, 49jh, the mother, is employed in schools and in my free time I take care of gardening, I make loom rugs and I create ceramic objects, which I sell at the craft markets.
    I live with my friend David, 46jh, and my three children Samu 24jh, Gabri 19jh and Elisa 22jh. 4 cats live with us. We live in a house near the shore of Lake Como in a small town called San Siro (Como) in Lombardy in northern Italy. The place is very nice and quiet, but it is a famous tourist destination. Our project is to redevelop an uncultivated land to create a small orchard. We are currently gardening and raising chickens and 3 goats. We also have a few hives. The place to carry out the work is about 1.5 km from the house, which can be reached on foot.
    Some days the work must be done independently, following the instructions discussed above. Sometimes the work can be done together with us, depending on the hours free from our work commitments.
